Resolve The Sync Error In Orbi Router –
Follow these tips to resolve the Orbi router sync error;
The first thing to do is to know that not all Orbi satellites work with all the available Orbi routers. Even if a satellite or a router is manufactured by Orbi, it doesn’t mean they will sync effectively together. It is important to check the compatibility of your devices.
Another thing you need to verify is, how many satellites can be synced with your primary wifi router. If you’re trying to connect several satellites using your Orbi router, you may have already exceeded your limit. If you do a thorough check on the number of satellites your router can handle this will help you to solve the issue correctly.
2.) Set it up properly
Another issue that may cause this issue with synchronizing your satellite to your Orbi router is that you may not have set it up correctly. Ensure that both the satellites as well as your Orbi router have been connected to each other via an Ethernet cable or wirelessly. Then, you’ll be required to press the Sync button on both of the devices in order to get it to work.
If you’re trying to connect your satellite wirelessly, you’ll have to ensure that it is located very close to the initial router you’re using. This will make sure that they are capable of connecting properly, and allow you to place the satellite in the location you wanted to.
3) Reset Orbi Satellite
Another thing you can try is to reset the device. It is possible the Orbi satellite may be connected to a different router and this could be the cause of the syncing issues you’re experiencing.
You must be sure you press the reset key for 5-10 seconds until the power light on your satellite turns white. This means your Orbi satellite is reset to its default settings. After that, you’ll be able to ensure that it syncs precisely to your router.
